Review: The Edge Of Never By J.A. Redmerski

Twenty-year-old Camryn Bennett had always been one to think out-of-the-box, who knew she wanted something more in life than following the same repetitive patterns and growing old with the same repetitive life story. And she thought that her life was going in the right direction until everything fell apart.

Determined not to dwell on the negative and push forward, Camryn is set to move in with her best friend and plans to start a new job. But after an unexpected night at the hottest club in downtown North Carolina, she makes the ultimate decision to leave the only life she’s ever known, far behind.

With a purse, a cell phone and a small bag with a few necessities, Camryn, with absolutely no direction or purpose boards a Greyhound bus alone and sets out to find herself. What she finds is a guy named Andrew Parrish, someone not so very different from her and who harbors his own dark secrets. But Camryn swore never to let down her walls again. And she vowed never to fall in love.

But with Andrew, Camryn finds herself doing a lot of things she never thought she’d do. He shows her what it’s really like to live out-of-the-box and to give in to her deepest, darkest desires. On their sporadic road-trip he becomes the center of her exciting and daring new life, pulling love and lust and emotion out of her in ways she never imagined possible. But will Andrew’s dark secret push them inseparably together, or tear them completely apart?

Due to sexual content and language, this book is recommended for 17+ – Adult Contemporary Women’s – New Adult Fiction

My Review

5 Beautiful, Unexpected, Heartrending Stars

Sooo after finishing this book I decided to check out..raisins in my toast.Those of you who have read it will totally get what I am talking about and those of who haven't read this book..uhmm whatcha waiting for huh??
So yeah back to that silly song..What can I say I am a curious person ;)

After listening to it I was like..
OMG its friking stuck in my head and my family thinks I am going crazy *facepalm* Raiisssssiinnnnnnnsss...

What an brilliant book why oh why did I not read this sooner?! I have had it on my to-read list and the arc for ages and when I spotted the paperback I thought oh well why not, its got great reviews and I will definitely be reading it, I just didn't know when. Soo I finally got round to it and loved it (totally kicking myself for not reading it earlier)

“I hate to say it, but shit really does happen. You just have to get over it. Beat the hell out of it by doing things that make you happy.”

This book starts off and you meet twenty-year-old Camryn Bennett whose life isn't exactly great everything she planned gets ruined by circumstances and she is so sick of living the normal life.There is something missing in her life and she goes on a journey to find that missing piece.She decides to jump on a Greyhound bus with nothing but essential necessities and see where the road leads her.With no plan, no idea of what she wants to do..will this turn into a beautiful adventure or a beautiful disaster.

“I think that if past lives are real then we have been lovers in every single one of them. I've known you for a short time, but I feel like I've known you forever.”

On the bus she meets Andrew who is taking a long journey for a whole different reason.They are similar yet so different, both looking for an escape, both needing more in life and wanting to find the missing piece to make them feel complete.

When I started this book I was like hmm its a bit slow atm I really didn't like Camryn's friends no wonder she felt so low but as soon as you meet Andrew Boom! this is soo good! He makes everything better..can you tell that I am in love with Andrew? Where can I find one of him? Ahhh if only fictional characters could come to life!

'Never thought I’d intentionally sleep on a bathroom floor next to a toilet while sober, but I meant it when I said I would sleep anywhere with her.'

I fell in love with this book, I was on a journey I lived what they lived and I never wanted to return to reality.I read this book non stop I just had to carry on and read more even thought I never wanted it to finish.I laughed, I cried and I loved..
Andrew is so damn perfect and I loved how he challenged Camryn and the banter between these two was hilarious.Andrew wasn't exactly living the perfect life before and when he met Camryn but he never let it show, I loved his happy go lucky attitude. He seemed so positive and filled with life, I loved how deep he was, how he could make you think/look deeper into simple things you never would have noticed otherwise.

“Just because one person's problem is less traumatic than another's doesn't mean they're required to hurt less”

There came a part I was not expecting and my heart stopped! And I was like oh god please no no no! this can't be happening..say its not true! SAY IT!! I was just going through so many emotions I was sure I would explode!

By the end of this book I was soo sad that I finished it yet soo glad that I finally read and loved it.This is the second book I have read by J.A.Redmerski and I can say Bravo woman! you bloody rock and I will be reading more of your books!! 2 here I come ;)
